The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has chastised Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, for the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration's performance claims, claiming that the ruling party's only real achievement is corruption.



In a statement released Monday, the PDP's National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, slammed the Minister of Information and Culture's news conference, calling it "another anthology of lies."

The hasty news conference, according to the PDP, is yet another frantic and disoriented maneuver by the APC administration to shift public attention away from the APC national leadership's exposed corruption records.

The Minister was also chastised by the main opposition party for allegedly attempting to shift public attention away from President Muhammadu Buhari's obvious breakdown of security and command structure structures.

It also bemoaned the alleged excruciating economic hardship, hunger, and other life-altering experiences that Nigerians face on a daily basis as a result of the severe food crisis, lingering gas emergency, high cost of crucial commodities and services, school closures, insecurity and mass killing, healthcare system collapse, and decayed public infrastructure under the APC.

The opposition party branded the Minister of Information and Culture's ability to address the media and claim that the APC administration has achieved food sufficiency, notably in rice production, as the pinnacle of impunity and hubris.

According to the statement, "a bag of rice that was sold for N7,500 under the PDP now sells for over N30,000," "a measure of bean that was sold for N350 under the PDP now sells for over N1000," "a measure of garri that was sold for N120 under the PDP now sells for N700," and "a bottle of palm oil that was sold for N250 under the PDP now sells for over N1000." Similarly, a pound of beef that cost N700 under the PDP now costs N3000, a liter of petrol that cost N87 under the PDP now costs as much as N400 to N500, and a liter of diesel that cost N110 under the PDP now costs over N800.

"The APC government's use of the media to tout non-existent roads, bridges, agricultural, and health projects as achievements is absurd and insulting. The APC's attempt to take credit for development initiatives launched and accomplished by successive PDP administrations, notably in the railways, aviation, agriculture, healthcare, education, telecommunications, banking, and industrial sectors, among others, is even more pitiful. "

The APC government is also taking credit for key projects in various regions of the country that are being supported by resources mobilized by PDP administrations, according to the PDP.

It claimed that the APC government's only legitimate achievements are its record of corruption (second most corrupt in Western Africa and 154 out of 180 on the Global Corruption Index), over 33 percent unemployment, a weakened currency at over N500 to the dollar, N33 trillion in foreign debt and counting, and the siphoning of over N16 trillion by APC leaders.

The PDP warned the APC that its ongoing arrogance in failure is daily facing Nigerians, with far-reaching implications.
